Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I used to mingle with people a lot, but since past two years, I am not talking to anyone. I like to be alone. Nowadays, I am always alone, and I have no proper friends too. People think I am immature. The fact is that I do not show the real me. Two years back I had a bad breakup, and since then I have changed a lot being rude and stuff. Sometimes, I hate this life. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your issue. You are probably going through a phase called as adjustment disorder or dysthymia. You need to try to get out of it actively by following thing like. Try to engage yourself in things you like, start a new resolution and work for it, practice yoga or daily exercises. Life can seem difficult, but if you stay focused, then this phase will pass. Having said that if you suffer from significant anger issues, low mood and loneliness, its advisable to be on a small dose of antidepressants, which would help you significantly. I suggest taking a small dose of Escitalopram (Nexito 10 mg ) will be ideal. Consult with your doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicine with consent. I understand that there is a long way to go. Just stay focused and try to take initiatives, Things will be fine again.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
